A new leak of highly radioactive water is believed to be flowing into the Pacific Ocean from Japan’s stricken nuclear plant after a storage tank overflowed.
A Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco) official said workers at Fukushima detected the toxic fluid dripping from the top of a tank when they were patrolling the site.
Tepco estimates 430 litres of the water, which contains highly radioactive doses of strontium, has leaked outside a concrete barrier surrounding the tank.
“(The contaminated water) went into the drain and we cannot deny the possibility of it having reached the ocean,” Tepco official Masayuki Ono said.
